POST 165, August 17, 2014
  
The Island of
CRETE
(Part One)
  
  



 

On that Monday, late night, my airplane landed on the island of Crete. The Cretan gentleman at the car rental counter has been patiently waiting for me but visibly willing to finish rapidly with my business as seemingly I was the last customer of the day. He made me appose some needed signatures then gave me the keys and a map, and nicely shown me the way to the parking lot where I supposedly must find my rented car, a red Peugeot 107.

 

The parking lot was a bit dark but I could see all the cars without any extra effort. After checking around for a while all these cars my rented car still did not appear to my view and a small panic somehow reached my soul. No one around, the night became darker than a few minutes ago and the situation became more stressing. While desperately I continued to check all these cars again and again, a saying about the Cretan came to my mind, that said:

All Cretans are liars’. Yes, that quotation was in the chapter ‘Paradox’ I learned at school, a long time ago, in a course of Philosophy.  “Epimenides, a Cretan, who asserted that all Cretans are liars”. So how could we think -whether Cretan people are liars or not- for Epimenides was also a Cretan, then he must be lying!

Finally, I did find the car which was mysteriously parked at another place but still inside the designated parking!    
My adventure in the island of Crete started with this story about paradox: A Cretan told a foreigner that “The car is in the parking lot”. Was it really in the parking lot? Of course it was, but not at the same parking!

Now I had to find the way to my hotel through the large city of Xania where streets signs were all in Greek!
Good night.
